Pirated Windows of course! Thats the norm in most of Asia (and maybe Africa, but never been there).

Microsoft turned a blind eye towards these markets, as squeezing money out of our empty pockets was a losing proposition anyways, plus the penetration helped spur the acceptance of Windoze as the mainstream OS, pirated or otherwise.
